BESTeam Feature :: Elle's Beads

Are you still trying to figure out the perfect holiday gift for the "modern fashionista" in your life? Look no further than Elle's Beads! Elle, from Raleigh, North Carolina, has a shop full of one of a kind, handmade jewelry and accessories in an array of colors and styles. Her items range from vintage inspired to modern and funky. Elle's love of taking recycled goods, donated and discarded items and repurposed modern fabrics shines through all of her beautiful and unique pieces. The items are arranged by color palletes which made me very excited to turn to the next page to see what awaited.

Carpetbagger Flower Brooch with Gold and Silver Vintage Button

I instantly loved this brooch! After reading the description, I loved it even more. The name carpetbagger flower was given because of the resemblance to the print on suitcases and luggage. How clever. Both fabrics used are recycled with a vintage gold and silver button in the center of the flower.

Funky Aqua Beaded Owl Adjustable Ring

These aqua shades are gorgeous! I enjoy the fact that somewhat hidden amongst the beautiful beads of Czech fire polished glass blue bead, resin flake beads and textured glass cube beads is a plastic owl bead :) Plus, the ring is adjustable so it will be sure to please virtually anyone.

Black Mosquitos - Funky Beaded Obsidian Fashion Chandelier Earrings

These earrings certainly are unique. The finding is used as the frame, which has seven loops, where beads and strands are dangling from. The gray and black patterend focal beads appear to be snowflakeobsidian semiprecious stones. A perfect statement for a night on the town.

Find these, and other great items, by heading over to Elle's Beads on Etsy. While you're there, treat yourself to an affordable, hip new accessory :)
